August’s Art Exhibit “Of the Quarry”, brought to you by Swarthmore Friends of the Arts, presents the powerful, layered, and textured artwork of local artist Megan Lee Wenger.
An exhibition of original mixed media paintings by Ms. Wenger will be on display from August 2nd through August 31st at Swarthmore Borough Hall, 121 Park Avenue, Swarthmore. The public is invited to the artist’s opening reception on Friday, August 5th, from 6 to 8 pm. Both the exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public. The reception will have complimentary beverages and hors-d’oeuvres.
I’m very interested in finding my paintings along the way: in the process and the layers I can discover more about the things I choose to reveal or cover up; the things we remember and the things we forget; the things we find precious, beautiful, worthwhile, hard. In my work, I use trash, found objects and debris, gold leaf and pressed flowers; things that have been discarded, and things that have been delicately preserved. I think both are valuable and substantive.
